employee is expected to appear in court today to answer to charges of pilfering thousands of dollars out of the university's funds for organ transplant patients, officials said.
District Attorney George Gascón said Dulce Tattiana Reyes worked as a campus finance manager, and was responsible for
all the money transactions within the university's Transplant Department. Reyes allegedly falsified 34 expense documents,
reimbursing herself for phone bills, travel costs, and dog
The final tally on all these "reimbursements:" over $17,000.
Gascón said his office will charge her with one felony count of grand theft and 16 felony counts of forgery.
"UCSF is a publicly funded hospital that benefits the well-being of San Franciscans." Gascón said in a statement. "Rest assured that we will hold accountable those individuals who try to cheat hardworking taxpayers."
We contacted the university to get a comment, but no word back yet.
Reyes has plead not guilty and currently has bail set at $100,000.
